I've been working a few large pieces and that's my excuse for not posting for a whole month! (This is not one of those large ones. It is only 11x14.) I finished this at the end of summer and was holding back on it to see if it all "gelled." As I was painting it, I did wish I had made the lamp a tad larger but I'm pleased with the end result. I didn't even have the actual tile I put in here. I printed it off an auction site and cut that out and put it behind the actual lamp in my set up. Sneaky!
On an unhappy note: They decided to close down the CalArtInst in Westlake, CA where I've been taking lessons. I'm really sad to not have a close class to go to now. There are some fine options around to be sure, but none so close and convenient. So many artists have come out of there who do such stunning work. I do so wish I could have attended class taught by Glen Orbik. Grumble....
Ok. Hope autumn is treating you well.
